Hi Sean! I have just noticed your Further reading additions at Affection. Please read Wikipedia:Further reading. It says that editors should only put in entries that are topical, reliable and balanced, and that the section should be kept limited in size. "Wikipedia is not a catalogue of all existing works." Please, make a selection of the most important entries, and remove the other ones. Thank you! Lova Falk talk 19:08, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
